  • Great for Navigating the Hudson

    By picadillycoop
    Looking for a navigation app to help me on my first trip on the Hudson River. I have a runabout without any electronics so thought I’d try finding an app that would be fun to try and hopefully be of some help. I used it for the first time on the water and it worked flawlessly in helping me keep in the main channel. Seemed to be very accurate in marking the hazards and all of the channel markers that I saw along the way. Worked great for me and made my trip much more enjoyable and I believe, safer.
  • Active Captain Issue

    By Frustrated a User
    I like this app. Active Captain has started to act buggy in the past couple of days. The AC icons flash continuously. Not sure what that’s about.
  • Good support

    Email support answered my questions promptly.
  • Needs AIS integration

    I could easily adopt Aquamap as my primary nav app if it would accept the feed from my Vesper AIS. The chart display is especially good for cruising inland rivers but I need to communicate with the tows and see their activity as I can with SeaIQ. Hoping AIS is in line as an upcoming feature.
  • What a mess

    After months waiting for this mess to sort itself out, I, although not owning a compatible Garmin device, decided to rejoin GAC. I am not impressed. It will probably take months more waiting before I Can reliably trust GAC again.
  • Better UI than iNavX but weak chart coverage

    By Scottfromsf
    I was hoping to use this as a backup chart plotter and have heard good things. The UI is snappy and more obvious than iNavX but unfortunately there are no charts for my cruising grounds (Pacific Mexico and the Sea of Cortez). I hope Aqua Maps partners with Navionics, et al, for global chart coverage.
  • Active captain integration is good needs names

    Good charts, most reasonable priced. Easy to use. Used it, in conjunction with usace charts to go from lake Barkley Ky to Chicago on the rivers. Active captain integration was great. Chart prices were a fraction of iNavX for the same coverage. 1 yr price for all of NA was 10.00. iNavX wanted 80.00 for the same thing. Improvements needed: 1. Wi-Fi nmea integration 2. AIS integration 3. GRIB overlays. Those items would make this a 5star plus application
  • Active Captain missing data

    3
    By SStresau
    I use this app primarily for access to Active Captain. It seems like a good replacement for Blue Charts which is no longer available. It works very well for finding Active Captain reviews - the charts are clear and nicely detailed, it's easy to use - unfortunately, not all the Active Captain data is displayed. For anchorages, it is missing the ratings section and the sections called Dock, and Services. If it had the missing data I would give it five stars.
  • Used to love it

    Up until the most recent update (as of 5/25/18) I loved this app. The map expand thing seems pretty worthless to me as it makes no sense to stretch out and distort the edges of the map. I’ve always wished i could just turn that off. The current version with the most recent iOS version is worthless. I’m using it on a 2017 iPad. It crashes and won’t restart without uninstalling it does redownloading which is very inconvenient while underway. All of the charts have to be downloaded again as well. I emailed their support account weeks ago when it first happened and never heard back from them. The chart prices have also gone up significantly since I first started using it, so it’s not as strong of a recommendation to others anymore either. The other comment about the Bahamas’ charts is also accurate, the coverage that this app provides for that region is worthless at this stage.
